Both the ambience and the food was very good. There are some interesting chef's special dishes and the staff are efficient and polite. Everything about the visit was good.

This was our second visit and we enjoyed both. This is a very eclectic Indian restaurant with a menu that incorporates some untypical ingredients and unusual dishes alongside the curry house standards. What makes it satisfactory is less the breadth of its ambition so much as the fact the cooking in our experience has been spot-on both when we have... More

Absolutely appalling customer service. A group of ten went for a celebratory meal. Waited 45mins for the bill, asked if they could separate the drinks from the food so we could divide the bill to be told "I'm not your assistant". Very rude, abusive staff. Will never go again.

This place is upstairs however there is a stair lift if requires. The staff are always pleasant and very attentive. Clean and served quickly. I would not say this is the best curry in Kettering but it is very good! Reasonably priced and worth a visit.

We visited with a group of 20 guys and found the food good service excellent. Watch out for the hidden charges on poppadoms!! They charge extra for the dips which is a little miss leading. For 20 people, it's a lot of money!

Went here for a new years dinner with my other half, my brother and his girlfriend. Pre booked a table for 830pm as we knew it would be busy. Arrived with a few minutes to spare so expected to wait a while to be seated. Got seated, drinks ordered and waiter returned to take food order at around 845pm. Food... More

I ordered my delivery at 5.30 as I was hungry after not eating all day and was told it would be with me in about an hour. Not the case as 90 mins later I was still waiting. My order arrived slightly after this and for £20 I think I may have ordered a little too much but as I... More
